I had problem I uploaded images and wordpress did not auto generate any thumbnails, My server is ubuntu 14.04 wordpress is running on apache2 I downloaded some plugins that were supposed to force generate the thumbnails but nothing happened.


The problem was solved by installing on the server php5-gd

sudo apt-get install php5-gd
